Yoshi gets another shot in the limelight.

I still don't know how i feel about the art style. Nintendo seems to be going a bit crazy with the 3D ever since Donkey Kong returns. One of the things that was great about Yoshi's Island was the charming aesthetic and art style, this just doesn't have that certain charm to it.

I'll definitely be getting this. Yoshi's Island is still one of my favorite Mario titles for the SNES, and I almost can't wait to desperately try to get 100% on every level again!

The visual style is giving me a huge sense of Uncanny Valley...

Might pick it up, but the visuals are much less charming than the other games.

Agreed. Also, why does Nintendo think that just adding "New" to the title of old concepts actually makes said concepts new? Writing "New" across the elastic to my underwear doesn't make the underwear any newer, guys. I mean, I guess it doesn't make them any less comfortable either, but . . . I guess my point is that if I'm going to buy new underwear, I'd like it to actually be new underwear. . . .

Turn that 3d slider right on down - that's what I did. It's got the same charm, I promise. (Or at least the levels I played did.)

I was genuinely excited when I saw this come up.
I'm definitely going to pick this up when it comes out.

I know what you mean but I actually find the style kind of endearing...
No idea why though.
